    MS suddenly pulled the RSAT downloads 10 minutes ago, and they are nowhere to be found on microsoft.com. Must be some kind of critical bug – be aware.

    jmi,
    Thanks for the heads up. The links stopped working earlier, but it looks like Microsoft re-published the links so they now work again.
    The KB article is still not active thought.
